Roman Bravo-Young Wins 50th Consecutive Match At Big Ten Championships

Fifth-year wrestler Roman Bravo-Young has yet another achievement under his belt.

During the quarterfinal round of the Big Ten Championship tournament in Ann Arbor, Michigan, against Iowa’s Brody Teske, Roman Bravo-Young reached 50 consecutive wins.

Bravo-Young dominated Teske going up 2-0 early and added on to lead 8-1 after the second period. He finished off the bout with a major decision score of 13-2.

Hailing from Tuscon, Arizona, Bravo-Young went 182-0 in his high school career before coming to Happy Valley in 2018. The two-time national champion posted a 94-9 collegiate career record with his last loss during his sophomore year in 2020.

Throughout the 2023 season, Bravo-Young had four falls, three tech falls, four major decisions, and two decision wins. Bravo-Young was also named the Co-Big Ten Wrestler Of The Week in January.

In the past three seasons, Bravo-Young had a 14-0, 22-0, and 14-0 record, respectively. Bravo-Young is aiming to add to the win column throughout the rest of the postseason and finish his career with another national championship.

In terms of the streak, the Nittany Lion is only second to fellow Big Ten wrestler Spencer Lee, who reached his 50th consecutive win on February 3 for Iowa. The pair had a potential chance to meet on the mat in the past, but the postseason push will only amplify their competition.

Bravo-Young and the Nittany Lions will continue their push for a Big Ten Championship starting at 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 4, for Session Two of the tournament.
